Abstract

The primary purpose of this study was to examine direct and indirect relationships between organizational justice and coaches' attitudinal outcomes (job satisfaction, affective organizational commitment toward organization and supervisor) through the mediating effects of social exchange variables. Head and assistant coaches (n = 260) at National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Divisions I, II, and III institutions in the United States participated in a survey. The results indicated full mediating effects of perceived organizational support (POS) between procedural justice and job satisfaction, but the results indicated no mediating effects of leader-member exchange (LMX) between procedural justice and job satisfaction. In addition, the results indicated full mediating effects of POS between procedural justice and affective commitment toward the athletic department as well as full mediating effects of LMX between procedural justice and affective commitment toward the athletic director. Practical applications of the findings are presented, and future research suggestions are proposed.
